Christmas Jars by Jason F. Wright

Where had it come from? Whose money was it? Was I to spend it? Save it? Pass it on to someone more needy? Above all else, why was I chosen? Certainly there were others, countless others, more needy than me...
Her reporter's intuition insisted that a remarkable story was on the verge of the front page.

Newspaper reporter Hope Jensen uncovers the remarkable secret behind the "Christmas Jars", glass jars filled with coins and bills anonymously left for people in need. But along the way, Hope discovers much more than the origin of the jars. When some unexpected news sets off a chain reaction of kindness, Hope's greatest Christmas Eve wish comes true.

My sister told me about this book over a year ago. I've actually had a post-it on my fridge with the title since last fall. Anyway, I wish I would have read it sooner, but I'm glad that I waited and read it during the holiday season. This is such a wonderful story of selflessness and sacrifice. I loved the entire Maxwell family, but Adam and Lauren were my very favorite-- they're the ones who started it all. This was another one of those really great stories that helped get me in the mood for the season. Read this! Even if you've read it before, it's a great book for this time of year.

 More Christmas books to come! :)
